JANSE VAN RENSBURG, Fika. The eschatology of 1 Peter: Hope and vindication for visiting and resident strangers. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.44, n.1, pp.201-228. ISSN 2305-0853.

The addressees of 1 Peter were living in an unfriendly environment. They were aliens and strangers, probably not only because of their Christian faith, but mainly because they were not citizens of the areas they lived in. Their alien status contributed considerably to their special situation, and this is the context within which the eschatology of 1 Peter is constructed. This article presents a working definition of eschatology. Then it constructs the life situation of the addressees. The eschato-logical utterances are identified and categorised, and the argument of 1 Peter is briefly constructed. The eschatological utterances are then interpreted. Finally the eschatology of 1 Peter is concluded and summarised.

Palabras clave : 1 Peter; alienity; discrimination; eschatology; retaliation; vindication.
